Unified Patent Court Litigation from the perspective of a German Patent Judge
(Dr. Matthias Zigann, Presiding Judge, Munich Patent Litigation Chambers)

Young practitioners in patent law are expected to work across Europe. And right now the European Union‘s unitary patent system is about to start. Get well prepared and ready to take advantages of great new opportunities for patent litigation! Keep informed and be a part of our up-to-date discussion about cross border patent litigation.

At this hands-on-seminar in Munich experienced experts will provide an overview over patent litigation in Europe, namely in the UK, the Netherlands, France and Germany – countries, where 90 % of the patent cases within the EU have been litgated. You should attend, if you want to learn more about the differences between these countries’ systems and how the differences can be strategically used in cross-border patent litigation.

Benefit: This seminar will be free of charge for you, including the afterwork network dinner in a typical Bavarian Biergarten. So save the date at June 5 and register right now! Please note: Places are strictly limited!

We broadcasted our seminar for you. Feel free to watch and share:
